DERRY A dog owner shot and killed a pitbull Sunday afternoon when it attacked his dog in the owner's back yard, police said yesterday.
Police said the incident took place about 5:30 p.m. at 35 South Ave. The resident told police he had been having problems with the pitbull, which lives in the neighborhood, said Sgt. Eric Kester.
Kester said an investigation is continuing, and the names of the shooter and pitbull owner were unavailable last night. Kester said the pitbull had bitten the South Avenue resident's dog several times, and a warning shot did not deter the attack.
"He felt he had to put the pitbull down because it was killing his dog," Kester said. He said police are not looking at criminal charges, because the level of force was consistent with what was happening to the shooter's pet.
He said more than one shot was fired into the pitbull.
Good shootin’ but what took him so long??...
Why was he attacking the pitbull and who shot him?
Please don’t take this personally but you two really crack me up.
BTW - Who’s the “Straight Man”?
How did the pitbull manage to fire a weapon?
Poor man. Imagine being shot and killed while attacking a pit bull.
“Police: Man shot, killed attacking pit bull.”
Sounds like the pit bulls have finally started to fight back against all the negative publicity they have been getting.
You beat me to it? Do you ever read James Toranto? He has a lot of fun with headlines like these with his daily column. Definately a good read.
Glad to help you with your “little problem”,,,
I’ve never met Chet99 but I send his links to city hall
and push a pit ban ,,,
From what I know he is stright too...
why was the man attacking the pit bull and who shot him, the dog?
The man was shot, then fell on the pit bull smothering it.
Man shot while attacking a pit, so what happened to the bull?
If they outlaw guns for dogs, only outlaw dogs will have guns.
Chettlie might want to apply for the pitbull bitch czar job Obama has open.
From the headline, I thought the pit bull was packin’.
